Leo Rizzuti has been following politics since the age of 8, sitting in front of his Mother's television cheering on the defeat of Jimmy Carter at the hands of Ronald Reagan (he was a very odd child). Growing up in the farmlands of North Carolina, he learned at an early age that hard work will keep you young, if you are not actively learning you are actively becoming dumber, and that life is too short to spend it complaining. Having served in the Marine Corps, he is fiercely patriotic and loyal to his country. He is a family man, a passionate Christian (who was once an atheist), a writer/humorist, an artist, a businessman, a news junkie and an American-American -no hyphens allowed. He believes that Reagan is the greatest President in the last 100 years, the New York Yankees, not the Dallas Cowboys, are truly America's team, barbecue is best in Raleigh, NC and that Dean Smith is the single most overrated coach in the history of organized sports, including the drunk that coached your little league baseball team. In other words, Leo Rizzuti is a man for all seasons.
And he is extraordinarily modest.
